What many may not know is that its sultry lines were inspired by another beautiful Jaguar, one that was built almost 50 years ago.
We are, of course, talking about the XJ13 racing prototype developed by Jaguar to challenge at Le Mans in the mid-1960s.
Only one was ever built but the car, despite never really seeing any competition, remains an icon of Jaguar’s past.
Now, to celebrate the birth of the new Jaguar C-X75, fellow British firm Alfred Dunhill has produced an exclusive video that links its inception to the Jaguar XJ13.
After the video, click here for a report detailing the significance of the legendary V-12 car and even some driving impressions.
